7 McCully Street, Ascot Vale. Melbourne, Victoria

This freestanding boom style double storey terrace is unfortunately not heritage protected and is in an unrenovated state.  Its double storey verandah balustrade, iron lacework and roof has been removed with a single column and decking all that remains and there are large visible cracks on the facade.  Still the facade is largely in its original condition and the lack of verandah reveals a  richly decorated parapet and party walls.

21 Hill Street, Hawthorn. Melbourne, Victoria

21 Hill Street is a richly detailed double storey house which is built in the terrace style although freestanding. This grand terrace features a hipped slate roof culminated in a central chimney above bracketed eaves – a design theme while repeated elsewhere, along with the verandah, makes an impressive statement here.

79-81 Merton Street, Albert Park. Melbourne, Victoria

This pair of terraces stands out for many reasons.  Firstly it is one of Melbourne’s few triple storey terrace houses.  It really stands tall even in Albert Parks streetscapes which are littered with rows of (mostly double storey) terrace housing.  Secondly because of the stark contrast in style and condition of the two.  Thirdly that they don’t even truly share a common party wall (it is two party walls side by side) makes their development all the more interesting.  Many villas in the Albert Park area share this double party wall configuration, however it may also suggests 79 could have been a slightly later addition.
